It is a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is only useful for children and young adults. Our office routinely sees patients of every age and has helped them have smiles their happy and confident in. Not only is adult orthodontic treatment normal and frequent, but it’s also actually becoming exponentially more popular with adults because of the affordability and ease of clear aligner systems. Clear aligner systems like our very own system, Laster Perfect Smile, are great options for adults who want to straighten their teeth. At Laster Orthodontics, we believe you deserve the smile you’ve been dreaming of, don’t you? Schedule a free consultation now!
What is The Laster Perfect Smile?
Aligners, like Laster Perfect Smile, are clear alternatives to braces that are approved by orthodontists. Virtually invisible, clear aligners allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly. There are a number of clear aligner systems, but often the cost outweighs the benefits of clear aligners over braces. This is precisely why Dr. Laster developed the Laster Perfect Smile system.
Delivering the same quality you’d expect from traditional braces or Invisalign, our clear aligners are made in-house in Raleigh with the highest quality plastics and custom-fitted to your teen. Because Dr. Laster designs and develops these himself, it reduces fees typically associated with aligners. This allows us to deliver superior and custom treatment to your teen at a reduced final cost to you. These are the advantages of the Laster Perfect Smile aligner system.
What Are the Benefits of our Clear Aligner System for Adults?
Clear aligner systems, like Invisalign, have become wildly popular in recent years. The benefits of clear aligners are known to many, but we’ll review our Laster Perfect Smile clear aligner system here.
- Virtually Invisible
Orthodontic appliances, like traditional braces, have long since been the poster-child for aligning teeth. Commonly thought of as an option strictly for children and teens, the stigma around braces has often withheld adults from getting the treatment they need. Now that clear aligner systems are on the scene, more adults than ever are getting their teeth positioned in their rightful spot, simply because they’re virtually invisible.
- Easy to Use
Caring for traditional braces doesn’t exactly lend itself to brevity. Apart from the complexity of cleaning them and maintaining them, braces simply take a lot of time to care for properly. Braces can be useful, but they’re not for everyone. That’s where our clear aligner system can come in handy. Aligners are easy to clean and use – simply remove them before eating and brush them before putting them back in.
Many patients begin to see their teeth move in as little as two months! Some patients even finish treatment in as little as 6 months. Contrast this with braces and our aligners are far quicker in some cases. A great option for busy folks!
- Custom-Made Right Here in Raleigh
It doesn’t get much more personal than your orthodontist making your aligners. This is a HUGE benefit of our aligner system because Dr. Laster knows your smile and where your smile needs to be. This ensures the aligners you receive are extremely precise. No more worrying if your aligners fit!
- Competitive Cost
Like we’ve mentioned previously, because the aligners are made in-house, we’re able to deliver aligner treatment plans at a very competitive price.
What Happens If I Lose an Aligner?
Mistakes happen, we get it! That’s why we make retrieving a new aligner easy-peasy! If you’ve seemed to misplace your aligner, simply call our office ASAP to have Dr. Laster custom make you the aligner set you lost. Just be sure you have the right aligner ready so we can pick right up where we left off.
Are There Any Food Restrictions?
Nope! Just ensure you take the aligners out before you begin eating. Once you’re finished, brush your teeth and your aligners with warm water and slip ’em back in! This is a big advantage over braces.
